How to find Skype password

Post by whois1230 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 2:35 pm

Hi, I can log in to Skype, because my account is saved on the laptop, but I forgot my password. Is there a way to find my Skype password from Mint? I'm running Mint 18.2 Cinnamon 64 bit.

Is there no way to find it on the laptop? Isn't it stored somewhere?

Have you tried looking in the settings of Skype? I don't use it.
But if the developers of Skype did a good job, they did not store it in a human-readable form. It's probably encrypted, or so I hope!
